A Quote – Aldo Leopold

Here is a thought for your day – and life.

 “We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”

Aldo Leopold

Up Close & Personal

Did you really ever look at something? Really look? Get up close and personal? Here is an opportunity to get close – real close and see what can often be missed. Look now at the detail, the expression, the color, the texture – close but not too close so that the “thing” is still recognizable for what it is.

 Looking closely at a thing, at life, at friendship, at one’s past; seeing the many fine details that make the whole, can give a new appreciation, a new understanding, a new perspective, a renewed purpose to move on and live again more fully, being whole again.
